“If the thing is authentic you tune into it immediately. You embrace it immediately. It includes you.” Leonard Cohen + His 2012 LA Rehearsal Performance Of Suzanne

I used to listen to that song [Suzanne] all the time. I didn’t fathom it at all but you’re saying I understood it simply because I enjoyed it instinctively.

Yes. If the thing is authentic you tune into it immediately. You embrace it immediately. It includes you. That’s what I mean to say. The song also includes you because it’s really authentic. Afterwards you can say why it included you, but that’s not so important.
